Re: Annealing Brass Photo-etch
No, most of the brass is too soft to beging with for my liking. I am a tool and diemaker and after 50 years of working with matal stamping and forming die's bending the brass from sets with a tool like a Smart Toll PE bending fixture makes annealing the brass more trouble than it cures. I would rahter have the brass harder so that it doesn't bend while just handling it like WE's too soft and thin brass.
How many of you anneal your photo-etch brass sheets before bending, and what process have you found works best?
